How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, I bet? Not to be a killjoy, but are you inside? If so, you would probably be surprised if you knew how many toxins you just inhaled, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…are you serious? The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your furry friend. When it comes to food and water, it’s trendy to go organic or upgrade your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Seriously, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. You really need to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: Keep you healthier. That’s right. And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air according to the American College of Allergists. Reduce? your energy consumption. How?
